AIR TRANSPORT

MAIN FEATURES

  • Selection of an unlimited number of hydraulic systems for each analysis
  • Description of each system through standard data (pipe diameter, wall roughness, slope, etc.)
  • Definition of non-dimensional quantities (clearing velocity and clearing discharge)
  • Definition of non-dimensional relationships based on similarity laws
  • Computation of hydraulic capacity curves according to various formulations
  • Computation of neutral stability lines (motion of air bubbles, motion of air pockets, etc.) according to different theories by several authors
  • Computation of actual velocity and discharge
  • Identification of flow regime transitions
  • Analysis of air transport capacity
  • Comparison of analytical results with available field data
  • Visualisation of results
  • Suitable for designing and testing
